iPhone v3.0.1 Released

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak

iPhone OS v3.0.1 is out. So far jailbreaking works if you use dev team tools redsn0w and even ultrasn0w. Purplera1n fails. I would recommend holding off the update though. It will not offer you much, if anything, and the current jailbreak state will most likely result in a 3.0 kernel on 3.0.1. In a few days a real jailbreak tool will be released. For those of you that can’t resist, you can update and jailbreak using the guides on this site. Just point redsn0w to your 30 firmware. This works for 2g, 3g, and 3gs.

Not recommended at this time. Good news that Apple hasn’t cracked down on the 3gs hole yet.

    The only benefit would be the SMS vulnerability patch. Though I feel chances are pretty remote the typical person would have to worry about this.

  2. Brizzle Says:

    I just jailbroke mine yesterday, I started back in the day Nov. 07 black Friday. I remeber the old jailbreaking days. I love what you all have done since I last Jailbroke Aug 08. Thank you to all that made Cydia,i have spent a total of 3$ in the app store since it came out. I surpassed that in my first hour on Cydia. As for 3.0.1 i think i will hold off until the 3.1 is out. Thanks again a big Fan!!

  3. fred1morocho Says:

    will we loose the unlock?

  4. mark Says:

    There’s no baseband update so no according to the Dev Team who discussed this on their various Twitter pages.

  5. Stunami Says:

    If we stay at 3.0 does a root & mobile password change afford any protection against the SMS security exploit? Secondly, apple has threatened a DoS on jailbroken devices. Does disabling the apple killswitch prevent that?

  6. wraithdu Says:

    No, the exploit has nothing to do with the root password as I understand it.

    Second, there is no theatened DoS. You misinterpret the article. By ‘service’ Apple means they may refuse to fix your phone if you bring it to them because you bricked it somehow.

  7. wraithdu Says:

    I just read on the iPhone Dev Team blog that it is OK to use redsn0w 0.8 with the 3.0.1/3.0 combo to jailbreak. They said there are no changes to the files that redsn0w modifies between versions, only the SMS patch. They said they’ll update redsn0w to recognize the 3.0.1 firmware, but that’s the only change that would be made.

  8. Beyondregion1 Says:

    Here’s a confirmation. I did the upgrade to 3.0.1.

    - Restore to 3.0.1 using iTunes

    - The baseband is the same, so ultrasn0w still works

    - Used redsn0w 0.8 and used 3.0.0 firmware (NOT 3.0.1)

    - Redsn0w got hung up on the reboot, so I had to unplug the iPhone and replug it back in to get around the bug.

    - Installed ultrasn0w and used a prepaid T-mobile SIM.

    - Works GREAT!!

  9. Beyondregion1 Says:

    This is on a 16G iPhone 3G, by the way.

  10. James Says:

    I will follow the big boss advice and wait till the dev teAm upgrades thier redsnow tool. Which from reading from digfferent websites they recommend on waiting. Hopefully the big boss will keep us update on the latest news and updates

  11. chad Says:

    so when it says “waiting on reboot” u just unplug and plug back in the usb-side? i get hung up on the “waiting for reboot”

  12. TheBaldEagle Says:

    If you open Cydia and read the upgrading to 3.0.1 section Saurik is working on something special for us jailbreak users;)

  13. Stunami Says:

    I know the password doesn’t prevent delivery of the payload, but won’t it help prevent remote access to the file system?

  14. Evolvian Says:

    Used redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak my iPhone 2G OS3.0.1 like Beyondregion1 says, works perfectly.

    Thanks ;-D

  15. Anonymous Says:

    I did it at the iPhone side. It may not matter which end you do it at. The bug is present on both the Windows and OSX versions.

  16. xavieralucard Says:

    Of course I’m sure you’ve gotten asked the following:

    When will the 3G Unrestrictor be updated?

    Thanks in advance.


  17. Kurt Loeffler Says:

    When will I be able to send and receive pictures through text messaging?

  18. John Says:

    I found the 3.0 fw and jb at http://www.ihackingexpert.com

  19. John Says:

    Same here, he was very helpful and it works! I just JB my 3G

  20. Steve McDowell Says:

    I upgraded to 3.0.1 and standard jailbreaking methods worked fine. My problem now is that I can’t get AppSync download via Cydia (hackulous source) because hackulo.us seems to be down. Is there a work around.

  21. Lucee Says:

    I will not upgrade to 3.01 fm, I had to use pplra1n to jb
    32gb 3gs, I first tried redsn0w but kept getting hung up on reboot, nothing happened. Happy w/ my precious iphone at this time. And BossPaper is ever cool. my last sentence was off topic. oh well.

  22. Tsetse Says:

    Don’t use them cracked apps, sucker!

  23. Justin Says:

    Wonder what it could be?

  24. carlos V Says:

    winterboard doesn´t work on OS 3.0.1 .. it´s hung up on boot

  25. Steve McDowell Says:

    Winterboard works fine on my OS 3.0.1. But.. I am still looking for what I can use to sync apps with Itune since hackulous is down and Appsync belongs to them.

  26. Brad Says:

    Hi what has whappen too ustream app ?? Can’t get qik to work

  27. Larry Says:

    I upgraded to the 3.0.1 without investigating more throughly. Using Redsn0w to jailbreak… the iPhone now does not recognize the presence of the sim card.
    Any suggestions? anyone else having issues?
    Need Help.

  28. Beyondregion1 Says:

    To get around the hang-up, just pull the USB cord out of the iPhone and plug it back in. The jailbreak should continue from there.

  29. Beyondregion1 Says:

    Larry, I performed the jailbreak myself late Friday night and posted what I did. While I don’t have an activated AT&T SIM (not using their service), I was able to get ultrasn0w and a prepaid T-Mobile SIM card working fine. Hopefully, what I posted may be of help to you.

  30. Steve McDowell Says:

    I upgraded to 3.0.1 for 3G using redsn0w and all is well. Everything works, only problem is you can’t get the AppSync program anymore since Hackulous is down and out.

  31. Wolfdxb Says:

    The wifi on my 3G greyed out when I updated to 3.0.1. and jailbroke it with redsn0w 0.8.

    After doing so many restores (DFU mode) I managed to make it working again (without jailbreaking) but it is not very stable still as it drops the network connections at times.

    I really regret upgrading to 3.0.1.

  32. Kristofer Says:

    I can´t install sbsetting with 3.0.1 FW.
    Will there be an update??

  33. Franky Says:

    Same Problem here with iphone 3.0.1 and sbsettings 3.0.4

  34. Franky Says:

    Looks like it will be a Problem with ICY and not with sbsettings…for me

  35. Stunami Says:

    I had a problem of cydia freezing at the re-spring and had to do a forced shutdown. Upon re-boot, SBsettings was there and working though.

  36. A J Says:

    can you not downgrade to 3.0 if the baseband is still the same and you are not happy?

  37. theforeigner117 Says:

    WTF. everytime i download the 3gs firmware for 3.0, i dont get an IPSW file…what do i have to do?

  38. Innovative1 Says:

    So if we are still on 2.0 is there anyway to upgrade and jailbreak without a restore?

  39. Innovative1 Says:

    Actually, I’m on 2.2

  40. Kevin Says:

    Me to I Need help

  41. Wolfdxb Says:

    I tried that but still did not work. so I had to get it serviced at a local iphone expert.

  42. Kristofer Says:

    Why can´t I download/install Sbsetting with Cydia.
    It just “locked/hang” when i tried to restart springboard.


    I can install other programs without any probs!?

    Sorry i did forgett.
    I have iphone 3g FW 3.0.1. I did not have any probs with FW 3.0.

  44. Ronin03!! Says:

    ok, so I am uber pissed right now. I had the app from cydia that installed that put ur app’s into file folders on ur screen. after I did the newest update, it reverted my phone to its old non-jail broken days, and all the app’s I had in those folders are gone! straight gone! tried restore, nothing. tried dfu mode, again nothing. tried re-downloading the app’s, says their already installed. tried deleting them off my phone via itunes and redownloading them, and as soon as they are installed the app icon dissipears! can someone, anyone help me with this?!?

  45. Anonymous Says:

    well you know that 3.0.1 is new you had choose to update so dont cry

  46. Anonymous Says:

    Download sbsettings or bosspreffs. Then go into hide icons. All the apps u had in folders should jus be hidden. Unhide them and they should go back to ur homescreen i did the samething on mi fone

  47. Ronin03!! Says:

    should I re jail-break my phone to do all that?

  48. Dee iPhone Says:

    Do 3.0.1 update fix the crashing on cydia

  49. Riaan Says:

    I unstalled 3.0.1 which resulted in my 3Gs being locked, I have unlocked using redsnow8 and 3.0 IPSW file. I had some problems downloading the IPSW (IE does not work I had to use Firefox).

    Problem is now that it still does not recognise my SIM. I have tried to install SB settings but I cant seem to get it installed. There is several versions of it on Cydia or am i doing it wrong. I cannot seem to find ultrasnow anywhere else.

    I am from South Africa btw. Any help will be appreciated.

  50. Riaan Says:

    I sorted it out. Did not know where to get ultrasn0w. I added the source and viola. De-bricked my phone in seconds.

  51. Doc Snyder Says:

    I had the same problem yesterday. After restoring four(!) times i realized i had to unlock the sim card before using Redsn0w to jailbreak, allowing itunes to activate the phone. After that everthing was fine :-)

  52. nikilaos Says:

    sure i ll wait for the 3.0.1 from BB

  53. eric Says:

    my 32gb 3gs start install the purple rain then come out the guy picture screen on my iphone & just hang & not respond! How I want to solve it out?

  54. Iblackdude Says:

    Purple rain doesn’t work.

  55. Mcar Says:

    I have a question, I understand that when you update the firmware it un-jailbreaks the iPhone, and you have to jailbreak it again. I have no problem re-installing apps and themes, but what about an app I paid for like iBlacklist? Should I be able to just download it again and then register it, or would I have to re-purchase it?

    I just jailbroke the iPhone a few weeks ago and have never had to deal with a firmware update before!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  56. Leon Says:

    by the way, to all the doubters here: upgrade to 3.0.1 NOW! I just received the malicious SMS messages on my iphone (i.e. the single char sms containing a block char, followed by a few other sms’s — hopefully I turned my phone off in time). But I’ll be upgrading TONIGHT!!!

  57. Sigma Says:

    afaik, purchased cydia apps are tied to the account they were purchased with and not the phone (or firmware)

  58. CR7 Driver Says:

    Ok whats the deal? Updated my 3g to 3.0.1 in iTunes. Downloaded redsn0w 0.8, and the correct IPSW using both IE and firefox. Neither one of them worked. redsn0w 0.8 give me a message stating that it is “unable to recogonize specified IPSW” I have tried this about 7 times. Now I am stuck with a plain old iphone, and it sucks. Need help ASAP or i’m gonna go nuts. Any advise is appreciated

  59. lilsizzo Says:

    @cr7 driver

    do not select the os3.0.1. use the redsn0w and find for the os3.0. that will do the trick

  60. Jad Waseem Says:

    Man … You need to direct your redsn0w 0.8 to ipsw 3.0 and not 3.0.1. thats the only trick … everything else should work fine

  61. Jad Waseem Says:

    I upgraded my 2G to 3.0.1 … and everything worked fine. Pkg Backup (which is a paid application on Cydia) gave me some hard time at first because it did not restore all my ydia application, but finally thanks to Jibril (the owner who is extremely helpful), I managed to solve things out.

    The only two issues I have now are:

    1. Supreme Preferences 3.0 has disappeared and I can not get it back. any idea where did it go?

    2. The package called (APN Edit), that used to allow me to edit my network settings does not seem to work on 3.0.1 !!!!! I tried to restore it via Pkg Backup, or to install a fresh copy of it through Cydia, but it is not working. I noticed that while installing it through Cydia, it is saying that is can not fine the Directory in which this software can be installed. For people who don’t know what (APN Edit) is, It is the Package you install to be able to edit your mobile operator Network Settings (Internet and MMS settings).

    If anyone knows a solution to this … please direct me on how to solve this! Thanks in advance people

  62. CR7 Driver Says:

    That is exactly what I have been doin. I have been selecting ipsw 3.0 for days now and same message. Just tried it again, same. I am gonna throw this thing out a window

  63. payton Says:

    How do you know what version of redsn0w you have. I just bought the software but I can’t find the version anywhere. If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

  64. payton Says:

    How do you unlock the sim card before using the redsn0w?


  65. Vishal Nandwani Says:

    I have newly bought iPhone now and am very interested to know about the Jailbreaking and other things that I can do with it. Is there a place where step by step procedure is mentioned on how to Jailbreak and then use other utilities to make iPhone fully functional. either using Cydia or Icy. thanks

  66. Jad Waseem Says:

    Yes … please review the step by step process on this BigBoss website or on the idev-team website

  67. Allthumbs Says:

    I still havent upgraded to 3.0 yet much less 3.1, as it seems apps are still trying to catch up a bit.

    Any ideas when would be the best/optimum time to upgrade to 3.1?

    As you can tell im in no hurry…

  68. Kannibal13 Says:

    I got hackulo to work after updating to 3.0.1 firmware. When adding the source, instead typing hackulo.us ( which is what I’ve always done in the past ) I typed in cydia.hackulo.us and it worked perfect. I felt like a dumbass afterwards but it worked.

  69. 34sweetness Says:

    Tried to update my unlocked/jailbroken 2G from 2.2 to 3.0.1 using redsn0w, did not work…would get hung up on “transfering data” and would not reboot even thought redsn0w said it was “done”. Now I can’t get my phone to do anything except show the “itunes + USB” picture…

    Any suggestions?

  70. Rockabilly Says:

    as Steve McDowell says i am also waiting for what I can use to sync apps with Itune

  71. jimmy lo Says:

    Hi I am from Mumbai, India. I was using an unlocked 3g iphone 8gb on 2.2 FW. Last month i restored via Itunes to 3.0 Fw, jailbroke with redsn0w 0.7.2 and unlocked with ultrasn0w. It worked for a week then cydia released ultranow 0.9.1 and then my probs started of No service. for 3 weeks I tried everything posted in most of the the blogs but without success, did multiple restore and jailbreak with 0.7.2 and 0.8. Even after installing ultrasn0w it did not work. Somebody suggested to use ultrasnow 0.8 by Rizwan. I did that and it worked for 24 hours but now I got a bigger problem. All of a sudden it shows ENTER PASSCODE. I tried but could not jailbreak again with redsn0w 0.7.2 or 0.8. Could not restore again as Itune says enter passcode to proceed. Pls help. pls advice. Thank you.

  72. jimmy lo Says:

    wanted to add more details. I used my iphone sim in other phone and it works. So there is no issue of pin code or password.

  73. Innovative1 Says:

    Ok, I finally just broke down and upgraded from 2.2 to 3.0.1. I backed up all of my files via SSH and backed up my music and contacts via iTunes and Outlook. Then I updated through iTunes and then used Redsn0w pointed to the 3.0 file to jailbreak. Everything went smooth. Now I am in the process of putting everything back how it was. So far so good. I am glad I updated as none of the new games and apps or updates would work without 3.0+

  74. Innovative1 Says:

    It turns out that I was wrong. Everything did not go smooth. After it finished installing Cydia nd I ran it it said “Reorganizing – will automatically close when finished” and then it just said that over and over, every time that I ran it. I tried like 50 times. I finally gave up and restored back to factory default and then upgraded and then jailbroke again. This time everything worked perfectly. It seems that if you already had it jailbroke it finds some of those files or something and gets hung up on reorganizing so you have to do it from a fresh restore. So now I will start the VERY LONG process of putting everything back how it was from scratch.

  75. anon Says:

    did you try 0-0-0-0?

  76. Innovative1 Says:

    Everything is working great. Whoever said appulo.us and AppSync doesn’t work anymore was wrong.

  77. JIMMY LO Says:

    Now I am in bigger shit. I tried different combinations ie 0000, 1111, 2222 etc. Now it shows “Iphone is disaled connect to itunes”. I tried to connect to itune but it shows error of ‘itune could not connect as it is locked with a passcode” whereas I never locked it, it happened all of a sudden. It still shows full network and calls are coming in but I cant use it to make calls or listen to music etc as as soon as I slide to open it, it shows only emergency call and does not go any further. Pls help as I am totally stuck. How to restore it again. Big Boss pls help.

  78. JIMMY LO Says:

    I tried many times to jailbreak it again with redsn0w 0.7.2 and 0.8. everything goes smoothly like before the pineapple logo comes and etc. but the same sceen of “iphone disabled” comes.
    Pls pLs somebody pls help and advice what to do.

  79. Innovative1 Says:

    cydia.hackulo.us works fine

  80. Darkmega Says:

    I jailbroke my 3Gs no problem. I’ve run into a problem twice now. Once the battery died and once I used the reboot feature in SBSettings. What happens is the phone will never boot back up again. Just keeps loading then restarting. The only way to get it back is to intstall the original OS through iTunes, then re jailbreak it again. As you can tell this is a timely process and a pain in the butt.
    Anyone else had this happen? Anyone have a tip for booting into a safe mode or how to get it back up and running without having to redo everything again?

    Any comments welcome on this issue!!
